of state in the second term of the obama administration, because according to john mccain, u.n. ambassador susan rice, who's a likely candidate for secretary of state, she once said something wrong on the sunday shows. in the days after the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, back in september, susan rice went on the sunday shows and gave the administration's intelligence agency-approved talking points, explaining what the administration thought at that time had happened in benghazi. and that, in john mccain's view, is unforgivable. >> maybe she could start out by publicly coming back on this show and saying, i was wrong. i gave the wrong information on your show some several weeks ago. that might be a beginning. >> but until then, john mccain will block her potential nomination. and anybody's nomination. no secretary of state for the united states of america until john mccain is satisfied. susan rice, for the record, did not give wrong information on the sunday shows. she described accurately what the intelligence agencies were advising her to say at that time. none of which turned

relations with israel, the role of the security council and in the city council in the u.n. almost everything important is at stake in this. this is the most critical and most dangerous situation that the administration will be facing in the next year. looking at in the wind while this year is critical we have to realize this isn't all about some misunderstanding or fixable problem with iran not to getting about its civil nuclear program or even its nuclear weapons program colliding with the international community. these are all manifestations of the long term confrontation that we and the rest of the region has with iran at least since the 1970's and this confrontation will go on regardless of whether we get a nuclear deal or have a strike to prevent iran from moving to that nuclear weapons capability. we are going to have to deal with this problem over the longer term just as we have the last 30 years because it flows from kuran's view of its role in the region and the inconsistency of the view with the view of the other countries in the region, our values and our role both in t
